The unidirectional lug-design knife gate valves of the T series have a monobloc cast body with interior slides for optimum movement of the gate during operation.
The unidirectional lug-design knife gate valves of the T series provide high flow rates with low pressure drop. Various seat and packing materials are available. They have face‐to‐face dimension in accordance with MSS‐SP‐81 standard.
The unidirectional lug-design knife gate valve of the T series has an arrow on the body indicating the flow direction.
The unidirectional lug-design knife gate valve of the T series is suitable to work with liquids with a maximum concentration of solids of 6%. If used for solids, we recommend installing with the body which indicates the contrary flow direction.

Sizes: ND50 ‐ 2″ to ND1200 ‐ 48″ (larger sizes available on request).
ND50‐2″ to ND600‐24″: 10 kg/cm²
ND700‐28″ to ND900‐36″: 8 kg/cm²
ND1000‐40″ to ND1200‐48″: 4 kg/cm²
The mentioned working pressures are just valid for the pressures applied on the direction of the arrow market on the body. As the valve is designed with gate support guides, the valves are able to support a 30% of these pressures from the opposite direction without any damage on them. In these cases, the valves are not 100% water tight. To obtain total water tightness in these conditions, it is necessary to incorporate additional supports.
